The map shows Israel owning Palestine... what is your complaint?

Some quiz makers might disagree, but they have to follow the JetPunk convection that Palestine is not a country.

You should grey out Palestine or use the striped function on Inkscape.

Good quiz, but can you make the borders a bit less thick? (Select all paths, then change border size to 0.1)

This is such a good idea for a quiz, but I recommend you update it and make it look cleaner. Loved it anyway though.

Having Crimea turn green when "Russia" is typed in rather than "Ukraine" is certainly... a choice.

I personally do not like Russia at all, but to be objective I just went with what COTW does.

It's your choice. Quizmaster even said this on the Russian Oblasts quiz: I say any quizmaker who wants to make a quiz can make a personal choice on whether to include Crimea or not.

If both the quizmaker and the owner of the series agree, Dan can put quizzes into series of another quizmaker.

It's very interesting, but in the end it's just another countries on a map quiz, that all the geography nerds will get a maximum on. I did.

Show some respect. I have known the countries of the world for five years, and I still enjoy these. Having some experience with SVG's, I know that this probably took a while to make. However, it is not as hard as for someone like me making them with a text editor. I really wish the map stroke would be reduced to the default of one pixel though. Or maybe even use this code so the stroke reduces when you guess it right: <style>.svg-holder .svg-correct{stroke-width:1px !important}</style>.

Hey Clutch, please don't take it the wrong way - I didn't intend any disrespect at all. I have great respect for all the setters of these excellent quizzes, and I really enjoy them. My original comment still remains valid though.
